This review is from: HooToo HT-PC002 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 2-Port PCI-E Add-On Expansion Card with Internal USB 3.0 19-Pin Motherboard Male Header & 5V 4-Pin Molex Power Connector (VIA VL800 Chipset, Solid Capacitors)
Pros: Inexpensive. Worked for one session copying files to my WD Elements USB 3 HD, then never again after a reboot.
Cons: Consistently locks the PC up. Tried new drivers, etc. System would lock any time the card was accessed or when I tried to update the drivers. Removing the card fixed the problem.
Other Thoughts: Could be a hardware issue, or maybe my machine just hates the VIA chipset on the card. I don't know, and its not worth paying to return the card. Grabbed a Renesas chipset card out of another machine, and it works fine.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great price from NewEgg, and arrived quicker than expected! Works great. Sped the system up nicely.
Other Thoughts: The Memory Finder is great -- 3 steps to find the memory you need.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SanDisk Sansa Fuze 1.9" Black 4GB MP3 / MP4 Player
Pros: Sounds great on good earphones. Screen is clear and plays videos great. Supports plays OGG files too, just upgrade the firmware first. Support site is great. Unit works in Linux in either (USB mode): MTP or MSC.(Tested using MTP mode in Amarok - worked fine.)This thing is well worth the price!
Cons: Video playback is a little on the limited side because you are all but FORCED to use the Sansa Media Converter (SMC) if you want video and audio to stay sync'ed. SMC is Windows only, and does not like to play nice with the Wine emulator in Linux. Not done experimenting with it yet, but those are the results so far. Make sure of what USB mode you are in -- songs loaded in MTP mode are invisible if you change to MSC mode later.
Other Thoughts: Micro SD slot comes up as another drive in Windows XP whether there is a card in the slot or not.READ FULL REVIEW
